my Ubuntu Hardy system gave me a new version of clamav-daemon lately:
- clamav-daemon 0.96~rc1+dfsg-0ubuntu1~hardy1~ppa3
- clamav-base 0.96~rc1+dfsg-0ubuntu1~hardy1~ppa3
After upgrading, the daemon refused to start.
ERROR: Unknown group false
Some debugging revealed a misconfigured option in /etc/clamav/clamd.conf
Make that “LocalSocketGroup clamav” and you’re done. Not sure if the change persists after you’d run “dpkg-reconfigure clamav-base” though. HTH,
